A Covent Garden Class
Steven Mitchell (Performer)
Ballet Dance Class Music CD
CD01 Ballet Dance Class Music CD - Steven Mitchell (Performer) - A Covent Garden Class - Ballet Dance Class Music - This warm collection of thirty-two compositions is a tribute to an area in London called Covent Garden. It is the main arts area in London and this compact disc blends together many different musical types to create a classroom atmosphere reminiscent of this artistic haven. Each selection on this 62 minute CD is played with the usual flair like stop time and big sweeping melodies that are so important to David Howard's ballet class. The CD starts off with the very familiar nocturne from Midsummer Night's Dream for Plie and continues with the equally familiar 'Waltz in A flat' by Brahms for the slow Tendu. The remaining selections offer many familiar melodies from Puccini, Donizetti, Strauss and Mendelssohn to name just a few. The tracks are not repeated and in the traditional David Howard style, several selections at the barre contain an extra eight counts for bending forward and back. 1. Plie-Mendelssohn, Nocturne from Midsummer Night's Dream 2. Slow Tendu-Brahms, Waltz in A flat 3. Medium Tendu-Smetana, Peasant Wedding from the Moldau 4.
